Hi, my name is Fred. I have been a classroom teacher for over 15 years. I have taught math and statistics in both high school and Grossmont College. I have single subject certification for all levels of math in high school and have completed all coursework required for the Master's in Statistics/Biostatistics at SDSU. I truly enjoy teaching and tutoring students in math and statistics and I believe my student ratings reflect that. My method of combining patience, simplification and directness has surprised many students as the ease of learning concepts they originally thought to be very difficult.

As a high school baseball coach for over 10 years I am extremely patient at teaching a concept and totally focused on the student's understanding of that concept. I specialize in simplifying concepts of Statistics and Calculus and am very adept at preparing a student for a test of any type. Much of this ability to prepare a student for a particular event comes from coaching.

As a retired teacher my schedule is very flexible and accommodating. I tutor daily from 12pm until 9pm and on weekends from 9am to 6pm. I also don't mind and expect to travel in a normal 25 mile radius.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Baseball

I have been a high school baseball coach for eight years. I am currently one of the lead coaches on a very successful high school travel ball program called the "Mad Dogs." I played on a National Championship junior college program for Pasadena City College in 1967 and at SDSU after that. I specialize in hitting and base my approach on the philosophy of Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn and Darrell Evans.

Biostatistics

I have taken over 30 upper division credits in statistics and 3 of those were in upper division biostatistics and 3 were in the Graduate level of Biostatistics. I have tutored students successfully in biostatistics before. I am sure I can continue.

Logic

I have taken and passed discrete mathematics, which entails an extensive chapter on propositional logic. I am also about halfway through my Master's in statistics at SDSU, which contains a good deal of material based on the fundamentals of logic.
